André Bisson: Latchford
Latchford is the new music video/short film from André Bisson featuring the title track from his latest album.
The project recently premiered before a live audience on the big screen during the Hamilton Film Festival! How's that for an epic premiere of a music video!
The main theme throughout this video is perspective and therein lies a powerful message. The story follows a man who is in search for the answers to the bigger questions in life. Along his journey and through a series of experiences and observations, he realizes that the answers do not come from the external world but from within. Changing the way we view the world changes our perspective. When we change perspective we create our own reality. It is within ourselves to create the life we choose to live.
As with his previous albums including 2022’s “The Ballad of Lucy Stone”, Bisson is the sole songwriter, arranger, and producer for “Latchford” but, when it comes to interpreting the tunes and playing most of the wide variety of instruments that bring them to life, it took a talented village. Bisson sings all lead vocals, and plays all the electric and acoustic guitars, as well as some percussion and harmonica on the new album but, joining him are Jesse O’Brien on piano and organ, Mike Rowell on bass guitar, Keagan Early on drums, Pat Carey on tenor and bari saxophone, Shawn Moody on trumpet/flugelhorn, Loretta Hale on trumpet and cello, Rob Somerville on trombone, Paul Barna on violin/viola, Quisha Wint and Selena Evangeline on backing vocals and Dan Rodrigues on additional piano. The new album was recorded at Mississauga’s Metalworks Studios with engineering and mixing by Wayne Cochrane Sound and mastering by Chris Crerar Mastering.
Overall, André Bisson says that his forthcoming album is about “holding ourselves accountable for our own destiny” and that’s also a personal credo that continues to carry him to new heights in his artistry.
The film was produced by Nathan Fleet of BluePick Media and shot on location at Westfield Heritage Village, Rockton, Hamilton, Ontario with Special Thanks to Sarah Gauden and the Hamilton Film Office, Rondalyn Brown and the Westfield Heritage Village and Gina Anki and Theatrix Costume House.
